Bless is by far the most creative fashion/accessory/interior/everything label we’ve got in Berlin – no wonder their store is as creative as the rest of their work. It’s located in a 3rd floor Altbau apartment on the border of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg, and the store manager, Jordan Davidson, not only works, but actually lives here.

The area around Markthalle 9 is – surprisingly – not only a center for foodies, but for fashion designers. More than one of the city’s best talents established their studios in the surrounding streets. And one of them just opened up his first shop – Michael Sontag.
While a few years back the centre of clothes-buying was certainly Mitte around Münzstraße, this area today seems to be entirely occupied by H&M owned stores. (Well, not entirely… One small street of indomitable fashion heroes still holds out). But don’t fret, Berlin is still vast enough to offer space for young entrepreneurs, courageous enough to start their own stores with a small budget. Like Gerda Jünemann, who just opened a small paradise for lovers of vintage treasures: The Good Store.
Do you remember those moments as a child when you stepped into the forbidden realm of your mother’s wardrobe when she wasn’t home? I used to love trying on her shoes and running my hands over all the different textures and fabrics, in awe of her collection of silk, fur, and tweed that spanned multiple fashion decades. My mother (bless her soul) always kept designer pieces from her twenties and thirties that she couldn’t bear to throw away. Much to my dismay, my waistline and my feet turned out to be two sizes bigger than hers, rendering it impossible to inherit her treasures. Despite this crushing adult realisation, it is this whimsical childhood memory that swept over me when I entered Soeur. The charming décor, the colour-coordinated hangers of clothing, and the rows of perfectly aligned shoes brought me back to a time when I wished that I could wear it all.
Temporary Showroom is not your typical designer clothing store. In fact, there is much more going on behind the scenes than its modern, floor-to-ceiling glass shopfront would have you believe. Aside from selling fresh fashion by Y-3, MM6, United Nude, Opening Ceremony, or A.D. Deertz, the store also operates as a press and sales agency that showcases selected brands during Fashion Weeks around the world.
